I was referring to Arnoud's explanation (sorry for not being explicit
enough).

Paraphrasing Arnoud's words, you should basically ask yourself:
* did the selection of the data that was put in the database involve
  creative activity by its maker?
* was the database created by a European company?
* do you have to sign an NDA before you get a copy of the database?
